vtx 1300 slight hesitation

Is there a reason why my XTX 1300 hesitates when I accelerate? I can be in neutral or ridding. If I twist the throttle a little more it comes alive/ Any ideas? I've done a pair valve removal and put in a K & N filter. Idle is fine and runs fine except for that little hesitation.

Check the carburetor slide diaphragm...The diaphragm is rubber, and eventually gets brittle and cracks, and causes exactly what you're describing....
